How To Land A Six-Figure Job... With Just A High-School Education!

Published on September 19, 2021

If you want a six-figure salary, college is a waste of time...

So says a former Ivy League professor.

Stepping down from a tenured position, the professor (who wished to remain anonymous to avoid hostility among friends and family) said for most of us, college is a 4-year waste of time and money.

"You want to know what happens to the people who spend four years working hard and getting that crushing student debt?

"Then just look behind the counter at your local Starbucks, or McDonalds.

"That's what a college degree gets you these days!"

According to our research, he's absolutely right.

The average college graduate comes out with at least $29,400 in debt...

And the number of college grads working minimum wage jobs has more than doubled since 2006.

Oh, and did we mention 30% of these fast-food workers, waiters, and baristas have at least a master's degree?

Or that this figure doesn't even factor in the grads who, despite their best efforts, can't find ANY work at all?

Job prospects may seem bleak for a recent college grad – let alone someone without a degree at all, or who has been out of work for many years like former stay-at-home parents – but this former professor says you might be surprised at the number of high-paying jobs out there that don't require a college degree or even prior experience.

In fact, he believes...

You Can Make Over $100,000 Per Year
Without Ever Going To College!

The secret, he says, has nothing to do with getting a degree from a fancy school, writing an awe-inspiring resume, or even being connected with rich and powerful friends.

Instead, it's about knowing which types of jobs employers are desperately trying to fill that have a lack of candidates, pay well, and don't require years of expertise.

Sound like a tall order? Well as this former professor says, the jobs are definitely out there.

The problem is that most people have never heard of them – and don't know how to find them.

"Many are in relatively new but quickly growing industries the mainstream public hasn't caught on to yet," he says. "Because of this, employers aren't necessarily looking for extensive experience since no one has it yet.

"What they ARE looking for is honest, down-to-earth people who are willing to do a fair day's work.

"And in this generation of lazy Millennials strapped to their iPhones, those kinds of people are getting harder to find – so they're willing to pay big bucks for someone who ticks the boxes."

The Best Career
You've Never Heard Of

"Take "online media buying", for example," he says.

"With the explosion in internet popularity in recent years – including stuff like Facebook – smart companies know the real cash cow in the coming years is online.

"Because of that, they're allocating money they used to spend on TV or radio into the internet.

"The problem, though, is that the only people willing to take on the jobs they can find are huge advertising firms who take millions of dollars and flush it down the drain with stupid ads.

"So they're trying to hire someone they can bring on and train "in house" who doesn't have a chip on their shoulder - like most people who major in advertising in college!"

The numbers support his views, too.

Online sales are growing at a rate of 14% per year. 85% of home buyers say they look on the internet first. And multi-million dollar giants like Amazon mean over 78% of people are comfortable purchasing online.

So what kind of lifestyle can you expect as an online media buyer?

Many Say It's "A Dream Job..."

  • Entry-level salaries begin at $40,000, with many starting at over $50,000 or even $60,000...
  • Online media buying is usually a "remote position", allowing you to work from home and set your own hours...
  • Your annual salary can easily increase to $100,000 or more within the first 12 – 24 months of your career...
  • Online media buying positions can come with full healthcare coverage in order to "sweeten the pot" and keep good employees in these in-demand positions...
  • And since you work from home, you avoid the hellish rush-hour commute becoming increasingly common in bigger cities...

Yes, on paper, it sounds great.

But Does The Hype
Match Up To Reality?

To answer this question, we interviewed Jason Akatiff, expert media buyer and founder of online media buying academy Startup Alley.

"Well, if anything, I think you're being a little conservative," says Akatiff.

"Most media buyers I know have salaries more on-par with high-paid lawyers. And they don't work nearly half as hard.

"Plus the job is fun. You get to be creative. And you meet some of the coolest people out there.

"But the biggest plus to the whole thing is the fact that this industry is so highly in demand right now.

"Frankly, it's a reverse of the typical job search situation – if you have an online media buying skillset, it's kinda like being the belle of the ball. Companies will CONSTANTLY be trying to hire you, even if you're already employed.

"That means you have ALL the power and can set your own terms. You're not begging anyone for a job – they're begging YOU to come work for them. That gives you so much more juice when you negotiate salary, benefits, and all that stuff.

In fact, the whole reason I created Startup Alley was because I know a lot of people who kept begging me to come work from them – or at least refer them a good beginning media buyer.

"I realized I didn't know anyone, so I created Startup Alley to help give ordinary, honest folks with that skill set – and then connect them with the people looking for work."

After hearing Jason's comments, we were intrigued...

So we decided to give Startup Alley a comprehensive review.

Here's what we found...
